    Off topic a bit but thought I'd say - I'm primarily an old PC player, and recently started playing Mobile a little bit since January/Christmas, and I definitely find Mobile much harder.

    Tho it depends how you look at it, like because mobile seems harder I tend to get more chances to win since my opponents generally have a harder time winning too. So I can win by playing worse on mobile than I'd need to on PC. as PC is fairly straightforward if you're experienced, so you can't really get away with any mistakes at all

    saying that straight after our match cuts deep mate, very deep! :( :/

    *off to practice room* :D

    Lol mate, didn't mean that! :D tho it does show how tricky Mobile can get

    As far as golf.. nah he wasn't that good. It shot around 78 on a good day. It doesn't take much to be an asst. pro... you pretty much just sell balls and sweaters and give lessons to old ladies and spoiled kids

    @JTS Brown21 let's play a race to 5. I want to see how having a greater coin balance would make you a greater player :smiley:

    I don't know man... it just seems to me the best player is the guy with the most coins in the bank. If it was real money I don't think anyone would argue that.

    i would argue that in real life too.......SVB surely makes the most money with tourneys, but no one can convince me that hes also the best player out there (ofc he is one of the best, but not THE best)

    Tourneys? They don't pay much that I've noticed. If they did I would play them instead of the 20m 9-ball game (10m in regards to coin balance)

    ah sry, you missed my point, im talking about real life pool :D

    Oh haha you got me! Fyi he's old now but I've played pool and golf with Nick Varner. He was world #1 for a while years ago.

    ah very nice, he was a beast back then....... (not sure about his golfing tho lol)

    Nick was actually decent. He was assistant pro at Christmas Lake Golf Course located in Santa Claus, Indiana. Lol that's not a joke.

    oh wow....he was that good? amazing
    Of course that was before he won 10+ world billiard titles. :D

    hmmm somehow i doubt he has over ten worldtitles.....but i really didnt wanted to search it from that list, he won too much to check it, maybe someone else? lolol

    Nick owned a pool hall in Owensboro and the was a big sign that read... home of Nick Varner, 9-time world champion. He sold that place many years ago and I thought I remembered reading that he had won a couple more world titles since then... I could certainly be wrong about that.

    Either way.. he was a world champ.

    yeah multiple.....and he won the most important too.....the world 9b.... not too shabby lolol

    So anyway the next billion came much faster. I had 175b career @ 17b coin balance. Now 18b coins @ 180b career. I'm no math expert but I think that's more like 1/5. I mean I'm still @ 1/10... just talking about this most recent billion.
